Solid Ziricote Wood Hourglass With Smooth Spindles


Continue Shopping or Checkout

This custom Signature Collection hourglass is handcrafted from solid ziricote wood grown in Central America. Often referred to as a "poor man's" ebony, this is a dark, very striking wood. The color is brown with irregular dark brown and black streaking. Ziricote is the most dramatic member of the Cordia genus, which grows in Central and tropical South America. It it also the heaviest, most dense wood we carry. Combined with glass bulbs hand-blown in England, this sand timer makes a bold statement in any room.

As with all wood each piece will vary slightly in graining and color making each hourglass unique. Hourglasses are handmade so sizes are approximate.

Love it!

Exactly what I needed to time the warm up period on some vintage electronics. I chose the Ziricote because my custom request for Ebony was going to be just a little too much. The Ziricote looks great and fits in well with my other ebony pieces. Thanks!


Absolutely beautiful craftsmanship! Seller was very helpful and responded quickly.

Excellent quality, easy to assemble!

These hourglasses are the perfect addition to my tabletop campaigns. Nothing quite puts pressure on a player like watching the sands of time flow in front of them. Will 100% buy from them again, just need to pick new woods!
